Packaging for Professionals (P4P) based in Fleurus, just outside of Brussels was established in 2015. The Fujifilm Jet Press 720S was the first technology investment Mohamed Toual, company co-founder and CEO, made when he founded P4P. The company’s investment in this new platform represents a European first, “Traditional printing in the packaging sector has always been problematic in two important areas. Prototypes were always inferior to the finished product – offering at best an indication of what the customer could expect – and there was also, inevitably, a time lag for the production run due to the amount of manual labour involved in the production process. The Jet Press 720S – which I believe is now the benchmark platform in this sector – has changed all this. Its quality, flexibility and efficiency means that these challenges have been over–come,” says Toual.
The Jet Press 720S features new generation Samba printheads with each B2 width print bar containing 17 individually replaceable modular printheads, each with 2,048 nozzles, ensuring the press can achieve native resolutions of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. The print bar also takes advantage of the VersaDrop technology, allowing the size and shape of each ink drop to be precisely controlled and placed on the paper. This ensures high digital print quality and no on-press tweaks are necessary. The replaceable modular printheads also significantly reduce the necessity for system downtime and minimize breaks in production for press maintenance, with a traditional offset-fed paper feed mechanism providing high registration accuracy and reliable operation.
The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.
A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has
demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.
As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.
The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.
Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
